TFMR Podcast #34 - Another Willie


The Golden Jackass returns today with a conversation that revolves around the debt, the dollar and what is to come.

I realize that we just spoke with Jim a month ago but there are so many wildfires currently blazing around the world that I felt it imperative to bring him back in today. This podcast is of a somewhat different format from previous discussions, though. There are big topics mentioned here and I wanted you to hear Jim's unique perspective, uninterrupted. Therefore, you'll likely notice that I speak very little and with few follow-up questions. My goal was to simply ask Jim a question and then just shut up and let him answer it.

If you're a fan of The Jackass and his immeasurable wit and wisdom, then you're certain to enjoy this latest podcast.

So, I guess it refers to Matrix of Power. Not sure what the E stands for.

Okay, call me lame. But I have been with this blog for over a year and still don't know what MOPE stands for. Can someone please clue me in?

Really good article. Thanks!

Your post prompted me to a quick search on this story. I found nothing after the original articles.

I never did buy this story. First of all, I questioned why a man who dealt in gold bars would not have an ultrasound, or know someone who did. I just could not believe someone would drill into bars on a mere suspicion, when that would markedly lower their resale value if they turned out to be good bars.

I also didn't believe it possible to hollow out a relatively soft gold bar to leave as thin a shell as shown in the photos. It appeared to be nearly as thin as tinfoil.

I may be wrong, but i suspect this story is disinformation, put out to scare people away from gold. I wouldn't be surprised if we never hear any more about it.

The Matrix of Power ..... by Hugo Salinas Price

A VERY interesting read .....

  Image cannot be displayed

An Élite is a permanent fixture of human society. The United States was founded by an Élite who enjoyed the humane culture of English gentlemen of quality living in the Colonies. A notable accident took place: the Élite of the United States were inspired by benevolence toward the whole of the new American nation which they founded. Their attitude of good will was expressed in their elaboration of the Constitution of the United States.

The creation of the US was an accident that changed the course of history. We shall not attempt to recite the subsequent history of that accident; suffice it to say that from those heights of benevolence, of good will to man, the Élite of the United States – and under the leadership of the United States, the Élite of most of the world – have now transformed into a clearly malevolent Élite. The Constitution is now regarded as “a goddamn piece of paper”, according to a statement attributed to a recent President.

The US Constitution has been erased for all practical purposes and a malevolent Élite rules most of the world through the Matrix of Power.

An Élite there must always be: its existence is in the nature of things. The objective for men of good will must be to weaken the malevolent Élite by undermining their Matrix of Power. The undermining of the Matrix must proceed by attacking the Matrix at its weakest link: fiat money. Fiat money is the weakest link because it naturally evolves into a chaos of hyperinflation and disappearance of international cooperation which inflames massive discontent. Fiat money is the element that enables the operation of the Matrix. The response of the Élite to the inevitable consequences of fiat money is predictable: they attribute economic – and cultural - deterioration to everything but the proximate cause, fiat money. We see this going on before our eyes.
